Prince Harry & Meghan Markle They Got Hitched and it was Awesome!!!

5/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT

The big day has finally come for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ... Meghan is now a Duchess and the wedding was a dramatic and kinda awesome break from Royal tradition.

Meghan and Harry chose the song "Stand By Me," as an anthem to their nuptials. A Black American Bishop stole the show and she walked half way down the aisle herself as a show of independence.

Meghan is now the Duchess of Sussex ... Harry is the Duke. 

Lots of celebs were on hand, including Oprah, George and Amal Clooney as well as David and Victoria Beckham.

Meghan's dad, Thomas Markle, tells TMZ, "My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.  I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness." Thomas is in California, recovering from heart surgery. He says watching the ceremony was "emotional and joyful."

Meghan's mom was a big hit ... clearly moved by the ceremony as she sat front and center.

Meghan wore a Givenchy wedding gown, designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director of the French company. 

It looks like Meghan's not going back to "Suits."

Donald Trump It's Great to Have Melanie Back Home ... I Mean Melania

5/19/2018 12:28 PM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump gave the First Lady a warm welcome back to the White House ... by misspelling her name.

Trump tweeted out the good news Saturday -- Melania's back home after spending several days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center recovering from a kidney procedure -- but called her Melanie in the process.

The Prez was quick to fix the typo after several of his 52 million Twitter followers called him out for the error, but the damage was already done.

Trump's known for typos, grammatical mistakes and an occasional covfefe in his tweets ... but he always gets the names of family and friends right.

Guess there's a first time for everything.

Welcome home, Melania ... we're glad you're back home and feeling better.

5/19/2018 9:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's dad is bursting with pride over his daughter's marriage to Prince Harry, frustrated he couldn't be there, and has a warning to relatives who can't keep their traps shut.

Thomas Markle tells TMZ ... "The service was beautiful and it's history. I will always regret not being able to be there and not being able to hold my daughter's hand."  

Thomas goes on, "My baby girl is a duchess and I love her so much." He tells us watching the ceremony made him super nostalgic, saying, "When you watch your child get married, every thought goes through your mind, every memory from the first day she was born, the first time I held her."

Meghan's father tells us he texted her today, telling her he loves her. He says he watched the ceremony on TV from his bed, where he's recuperating from heart surgery.

And get this ... he says, "Now I pray that Harry and Meghan can go on a nice honeymoon and rest and relax, and all of my relatives will just shut up about everything."

Thomas says because of his health problems he hasn't been able to get Meghan and Harry a wedding gift, but he hopes to do it soon.

Trippie Redd Talks Trump, Tay and Tekashi ... Before Clash with Security

5/19/2018 3:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rapper Trippie Redd makes it clear who he f***s with and who he doesn't, but one thing we don't know yet ... why a bouncer was so pissed at his crew.

We got the 18-year-old rapper leaving Delilah in Weho Friday with his entourage, and he's got takes on meeting with President Trump, foul-mouthed 9-year-old rapper Lil Tay, and Tekashi69 ... and that last take's sure to heat up their beef.

But the real fireworks came as Trippie's ride was trying to drive away, but a bouncer from Delilah got in the street and blocked them from leaving. The rapper got around him pretty quick ... but things got heated with the car the rest of his crew was in.

We're told the bouncer was trying to stop them because there was a fight in the restaurant earlier ... and Trippie's guys were allegedly connected.

Clearly, they didn't want to stick around and talk about it.

Meghan and Harry's Wedding American Bishop Steals Show

5/19/2018 4:58 AM PDT

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle were front and center -- obviously -- at their wedding, but the surprise star turned out to be an American Bishop who gave a stirring sermon about love.

The Bishop's presence is significant for a bunch of reasons ... notably, an American took to the pulpit at a Royal Wedding. Bishop Curry is the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the U.S. and 16 other countries. Also, not lost is the fact he's African American, as is Meghan. It's especially poignant given what happened several months ago, when Princess Michael of Kent wore a racist Blackamoor brooch when she met Meghan.

Bishop Curry gave a rousing speech about love ... which had Meghan and Harry smiling.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... an ambulance was called to Russell's home in the Seattle area Friday night, and the 84-year-old Celtics legend was rushed to a nearby hospital.

We're told Bill was having heart trouble and shortness of breath ... and is still hospitalized. We've reached out to get an update on his condition.

The 11-time NBA champion center was also hospitalized in 2014 after collapsing at a speaking gig in Lake Tahoe, but recovered quickly.

Bill's considered one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and recently attended Game 1 of the Celtics playoff round vs. the 76ers. Obviously, the crowd went wild.

Get well, Bill!

Elton John Performs 'Your Song' ... At Royal Wedding Reception

5/19/2018 8:51 AM PDT

Elton John just performed at the reception for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle ... just as we said he would.

We've learned Elton sang "Your Song" to the VIP crowd. On hand -- the Queen and the Queen, aka Oprah. We're told he performed other songs as well.

It's interesting ... Ellie Goulding performed the same song at William and Kate's wedding.

TMZ broke the story Elton would be performing. Makes sense, given he's super close to Prince Harry and was obviously extremely tight with Princess Diana. 

The reception is a luncheon at Windsor Castle, hosted by the Queen. We're told all 600 guests are in attendance.

There will be a second reception hosted by Harry's dad Prince Charles at Frogmore House where the guest list will be whittled down to 200. That bash starts at 7 PM London time and could go into the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Lamar Odom looks like he had himself a good time at the club ... tearing it up right by the stage for all to see.

The former NBA star hit up Drai's nightclub at The Cromwell in Vegas Friday night, and fully indulged in the party scene -- bottle and vape pen in hand, dancing with a hot chick ... and more dancing by himself.

Last couple times we've seen Lamar he's told us he's working on 2 different things ... making a basketball comeback, and helping people with ailments get better through his cannabis company.

Clearly he took a break from the hard work to have some fun.

Meghan and Harry's Wedding Freaks and Geeks ... Line the Streets

5/19/2018 6:08 AM PDT

While the pageantry was in full force inside Windsor Castle ... outside it was a big 'ol party with some bizarro getups.

Check it out ... a combo of British duds that would shock even Elton John, and a touch of Americana that looks like a 4th of July BBQ.

Tens of thousands of people lined the streets craning their necks for a glimpse of the newlyweds. By the way ... interesting in these times Harry and Meghan rode by everyone in an open coach.

Here's the good news. For the freaky lookin' ones who were too far back to see anything, we believe producers from "Let's Make a Deal" were watching so they may end up on "The Big Deal of the Day."

Caitlyn Jenner Alleged 21-Year-Old GF 'Home Sweet Home' In Cait's Crib

5/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner and her rumored 21-year-old girlfriend appear to have shacked up together ... and the proof is all in Jenner's bed!

Caitlyn and Sophia Hutchins -- who is also transgender -- have reportedly been an item for several months. However, earlier this week Sophia dropped a massive hint as to just how serious things between the two might actually be.

Hutchins posted a photo of herself lying on a bed with the caption, "Home. Sweet. Home." Look closely ... the bed's headboard is the exact same one Caitlyn's posted many times in the past from her Malibu home.

Sources close to the two tell us 68-year-old Jenner and Hutchins are not romantic -- just close friends -- and rumors they're about to tie the knot are total BS ... but Hutchins' pic and caption seemingly seals the deal on the fact they're at least roommates ... at least.

EXCLUSIVE

Lili Reinhart somewhat brilliantly gave her take on why school shootings keep happening.

We got the "Riverdale" star Friday leaving LAX, just hours after the latest school shooting that left 10 dead. As you know, a student at Santa Fe High School in Texas opened fire, killing 9 students and 1 teacher.

Lili believes there are warning signs when someone reaches a point of grabbing a gun and slaughtering students, but the signs are almost always ignored.

She's definitely worth listening to.
